Chai mamma

I am a big fan of chai but there’s good chai (fragrant and warming) and there’s bad chai (watery and burnt).

Having tasted some very bad chai over the years, last year East St Kilda resident Naomi decided to take matters into her own hands and to produce her own chai. Chai mamma is an authentic chai tea made using Fair Trade Certified black tea which is blended with spices and packaged by hand.

Naomi now produces five different sorts of chai : original, spice, family, ginger and green tea, which are all available in 120g (see above) or 1kg loose leaf packets.  The chai will soon be available in tea bags.

You can buy the Chai mamma tea by emailing Naomi at and occasionally it’ll pop up in various farmers markets.

Thanks to Naomi I have two x 120g packets of loose leaf chai tea to give away to seven lucky readers (sorry Australian residents only) so you can try it for yourself. All you have to do is leave a comment below before midnight Friday 19 February. I’ll be holding a random draw and will announce the winner on Saturday 20 February on the blog. Good luck!
